This fish bones polymer clay cutter set includes three cutters: a head, a double-ribs cutter, and a tail fin cutter. This cutter set comes in one size. The length of the assembled fish skeletons will vary depending on how many of the ribs pieces you use as well as the size of jump rings you choose to assemble the fishes with. We assembled ours with 4 mm jump rings. A fish with three ribs ended up being about 3 cm long and a fish with 5 ribs measures about 4 cm long.
The fish head cutter was designed to be used with clay that's approximately 2.5 to 3 mm thick, so that the eye detail shows up. Since this design looks best with small jump rings, you may have an easier time if you use slightly thinner clay for the rib pieces and tail fin. This will make assembly with smaller jump rings much easier!
As an alternative to using small jump rings, instead of drilling two holes in each of the rib pieces, as we have here, you can choose to drill one larger hole in the center of the rib shape. When you drill a single larger hole, you can then use longer jump rings and thread two of them through the larger hole.
Our polymer clay cutters are printed with resin, meaning the individual lines from the printing process don't show at all so the edges of your clay pieces come out very smooth. Additionally, resin allows us to create a beveled cutting edge on the cutters so that they slice through the clay, pushing the excess clay out and away, rather than just smashing it down onto your cutting surface. You're left with crisp, clean edges often with little to no cleanup or sanding necessary.
Cutter color is not guaranteed. I'm always playing around with new resin colors and shimmer effects. I can't promise yours will be this color, but I can promise that they'll be sharp and they'll look cute!
Cutter measurements are approximate, but they will always be within a few millimeters of the posted measurements. Sizes are based on the height of the cutter, not the width.
Cutters are not guaranteed to be food safe.
